Absolutely amazing!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked in and saw a delicious dinner waiting for us to the last breakfast our stay was amazing. The staff went above and beyond. Thank you Nober, Roy, Opa, Day, Hanifa, Yandy, and the two other girls who I can’t remember their names. You were all wonderful! The meals were delicious and the house was thoroughly cleaned everyday. Make sure you ask for the pancakes at breakfast. They were also very helpful in taking us to the local store as well as the store in Manado. The house reef had beautiful coral. Make sure you enter by the big rock to the right of the stairs. It’s a sandier bottom. One of my favorite parts was floating in the infinity pool. We brought rafts. Everything was very relaxing a true five star vacation home.

Patrick was very helpful in promptly answering all the questions I had. We got to meet him as he was staying at the villa down the hill from us. He gave good tips about boat trips to Bunaken and what to do in the area. He even provided me with stomach medicine when I bought the wrong one in the store. ( I didn’t get sick at the house, we were in Jakarta for a week before our villa stay).

The massages at the villa were wonderful too. Thank you Grace and Vicki.

I’m still in denial that our trip is over. If we ever have the chance to go back to Sulawesi we will definitely stay at Villa Manare.

The greatest vacations ever!

  • 5 of 5

Charming, magical location with romantic view on Manado Bay and yet far away from big city. Spaceful, beautiful, luxurious villa to share with loved ones. Great original indonesian food prepared freshly every day by dedicated and friendly crew. We felt spoiled by the royal treatment we were given by the Villa Manare's crew. They became our new family far from home. Thank You for the unforgetable time! M, G, A, A

Lovely place, had a great time

  • 5 of 5

Nicely furnished, very comfortable. Nice balance between Indonesian, rustic and luxury. Staff were great, the fridge was full of cold beer and tonic when we arrived which was a nice touch, pool was really lovely, internet was pretty good but would have been helpful if we'd known tin advance there was a daily limit of 1Gb/day, all the recommended tours/diving packages were great (insist on a decent quality van for the local tour though, ), grounds are well maintained, charges for laundry/lunch etc were reasonable. Kids (4 and 6) liked it too. Wouldn't be any good if you want nightlife on your door step but if you want a bit luxury away from it all, it is perfect. All in all a great holiday

I could write an essay about how amazing this place is and why you should visit it! We have just returned from a 2 week stay at Villa Manare and already miss it. The pictures do not do justice to the beauty and amazing position of this villa. It is beautifully furnished and the pool is stunning. The team at the villa made us feel so welcome and spoiled! Thank you especially to Opa for the fantastic food and tour of Northern Sulawesi. We are all divers and were blown away by the diving in both Manado bay and Bunaken. The snorkelling directly off the villa's private beach though was superb! We used the kayaks several times and got to explore the area further. Thanks again to Patrick and his family for your hospitality and help (also for your patience for my multiple and frequent questions!!!) . Hopefully will return one day!
